    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    I think they're testing them every weekday now. Was out at Bayview yesterday and they started moving 1122 and 1123 towards 11:00. It's the same in the east between Lees and ??? (somewhere past Tremblay). They've got some pretty speedy trains there now.

    Apparently Tunney's and Bayview are critical too. https://www.ottawamatters.com/local-news/lrt-builder-confident-it-will-meet-november-deadline-1014379 Although, I think the real risk is that the train control system won't work or will have issues. That would really set things back.

    Commuter train? Groups Names ?

    I'm sure they would if they had the money. Money is their big problem, otherwise they'd have built the thing already. They're currently trying to secure $5 million to fund a financial feasibility study. Once that study is done (assuming it shows positive results), they'd be able to obtain their certificate of fitness and move on to securing the funding to start building the system. The feasibility study would also contain detailed construction and service plans (much like an EA). In an ideal world (for them) they'd get their funding and complete the study before Stage 2 begins construction. Then they can tie in their construction projects into Stage 2 and have the whole thing up and running by 2021 alongside Stage 2.
  4. Does anyone know if you can buy the multi-day passes on buses from the operator?

    If there's one thing MOOSE is, it's persistent. They've been a thing for 7 years now and they're still going. As of a couple of weeks ago they were in talks with another investor (the third in a year?). There's obviously a lot for them to do, but with that level of persistence who knows what will happen. According to them, they would double track the entire Trillium Line corridor in order to facilitate train frequencies.

    OC Bus Spottings

    Yesterday there was a D60LF doing a run of the 112 Billings at 11:23 PM.

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    It could, but it never has. It's also always stopped at Gladstone. Basically everywhere where there should have been (and now will be) an O-Train station.

    The 107 has always served South Keys. Edit: But it really most likely is just a mistake since the replacement bus route doesn't run most of the time (if ever) on most days.

    It might be to indicate that the Line 2 replacement bus serves that station. Still a little weird though.

    Improved connection between Hurdman Station and The Ottawa Hospital (TOH), General Campus: Service every 15 minutes during weekday peak and midday periods Service every 30 minutes evenings and weekends Becomes primary connection to the hospital campus from Hurdman Station Will replace Route 106 overnight service between LeBreton Station and TOH General Campus

    Aha! I think the 45 is replacing all of that.

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    Based on the wording in the memo that was posted in the other thread, it seems like the intention may be to open the line early to mid November?

    Does anyone know if/when OC Transpo plans to renumber the 107 to the 2 in the near future? (Or later, for Stage 2). Just curious.
  15. I could be wrong, but aren't those (UPasses) just based on the STO's Multi Smart Card?
